... Felix?

Of course, there are four other kids in the mix, but I still can't decide if these matchy endings stick out like a sore thumb.

I don't know, I think they might be a little close. I woludn't mind similar endings in general, but -ix is such a weird ending that I think it stands out. Also, I know you are big on nicknames, and Felix doesn't have an obvious nickname. Have you considered:

Leander
Casper
Edmund
Gilbert
Giles
Cornelius
Crispin
Sylvester
Conrad

I think Felix is a great name--fun and classic at the same time, great meaning...but I just couldn't with Beatrix.

This reminds me my dilemma with the name Claudia. I love the name. If we used it in the future, we would either be repeating the beginning sound of Claire or the ending of Julia. I have thought about this a bit and decided that I would be fine using it if it seemed the most *right* name. So, I guess I think I would vote "for" in this matter- it does help that Felix is smashingly charming.

Hi Jodi! I haven't been on here in ages but I remember you and your family and they're all so cute!! You know, I wouldn't do Beatrix and Felix if it were just the two of them, but in an amongst the others I don't think I'd mind too much. I don't see you nn'ing them similar things, like Trixie and Lix or something? LOL!

I don't think it's that bad. I would notice it but I wouldn't think "That's weird, why would she do that?"

I rather like Lex as a nickname... maybe Fox?

Thanks everyone,

I think this board is probably the only place I could come where I wouldn't feel like I have two heads for even *noticing* the matchy endings :)

Honestly I like Felix, it was on our list for Sullivan, but I am not sure I could go with the whole ix ending with 2 of them. If I was going to break the rules anyways I would totally go with Barnaby for you. Of course if I was you I would totally go with Barnaby anyways.

Of course we did break our name rules with Sullivan and I don't regret it, we so were never going to use an S because of the alliteration with the last name, but it really was the only name that fit him.



Thank you for the sig Mary
